OIKOS (oy'kos)

The Greek word for home, household, or family

 

Jesus came as a human being and showed us how to live life in relationship with others. In Scripture we see Jesus spend time with the Father, his disciples, and those of the world around him.

Similarly, Oikos communities seek to express life together through three primary relationships: their upward relationship to God (UP), their inward relationship to one another (IN), and their outward relationship to the world (OUT). 

Oikos communities meet together during the week, usually in homes across Vancouver. Each week, an Oikos will intentionally focus on one of the three relationships, resulting in a three week rhythm of UP/IN/OUT.

Oikos communities contain people of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities. Our hope is that they resemble the extended family, characterized by discipleship, friendship, and mission.

If you have a particular Oikos that you are interested in, contact the specific Oikos leaders below. If you have a general inquiry or would like more information, contact the office at oikos@redemptionchurch.ca.
